I want to thank you for excellent service -- I could not ask for better.
Your web site was easy to use and to order from. I received a quick confirmation of the order, which even seemed personalized confirmation of shipping. And then it arrived 3-4 days earlier than I would have expected. And it was the right product, right size, right mount. And it was all done in about 15 minutes for me- saved me driving time, gas costs, and having to special order unstocked merchandise locally-- less expensive when all those factored in. I'm delighted.

E trailer is a very good Co, with a great ion of products...However this particular spare tire mount is crap. Treads were rough and not easy to spin nutbracket.. Threw it in the woods and spent a little extra on a different style.
-- comment by: Tom G - 10/10/2013


This lockable unbolt spare tire attachment is exactly what I needed to keep my spare tire handy for the boat trailer. Super easy to install and keep it locked onto the trailer.


the extra length exactly what I needed to mount my spare.


Not good one of the nut brackets is no good

It sounds like you have a manufacturer flaw. I went ahead and sent this on to our customer service team to reach out and get you taken care of.
-- Etrailer Expert Brooke M - 06/23/2022


This spare tire carrier works great . Due to where I had to mount it I needed to space it out a bit. Two short peices of pipe and a couple of large washers would work but I have welding capability so I made a fancy one...


Everything that Etrailer said would HAPPEN did. The trailer spare tire assembly worked very well on my trailstream boat trailer AND I CAN LOCK IT.

The spare tire carrier is awesome
Paul - 07/31/2021


Functional. Affordable. Secure. Easy to install. Here is a picture of it installed on my snowmobile trailer. Highly recommended!


I use this to lock my spare under the back of my trailer. It works great and is easy to use.


Basic design is good. However, the tapped/threaded bent straps are too thin and stripped out on the first installation. I will have to get nuts tack welded to the strap ends to extend the threaded surface part which will then provide a proper hold.


As always great products and customer service. I am a returning customer because etrailer has each and every time exceeded my expectations. Yes buzz words but never disappointed my purchases.

stephen k - 08/16/2021


Nice product, but it doesn’t fit a 5 on 5 wheel. I guess it was my error when ordering.


excellent communication, fast shipping, great seller


This item worked perfectly!
It enabled
me to mount my spare trailer tire in the perfect location and secure with a pad lock.
This was a quick and easy solution!

This has been the perfect solution to mounting my spare tire to my utility trailer.
Barry - 11/18/2015


would be nice to have lug nuts with clamp otherwise great clamp


Serves the purpose well.


The product works just as advertised. It took no longer than five minutes to install the spare tire to its new location on the trailer frame and is there to stay until it becomes necessary to utilize it--which hopefully is never.
The slot for the padlock is only about 1/4" so if you do not buy the lock that goes with the bracket plan on using a padlock with a bale of this size.


I had a boat trailer and a new spare tire wheel/combo with no place to mount it. Not any longer! For $19 and change and what should have been 5 minutes of my time( I don't ever read instructions) the spare was securely mounted to my trailer.


This is a good product - functional and useful for deterring thieves from stealing your spare wheel/tire. I didn't give it 5 stars because the thread pitch is not the same as standard lug nuts so you will have to tighten it down with the locking brackets or get 1/2" nuts with correct pitch at the hardware store. I would have preferred to tighten it down with lug nuts and screw on the locking brackets over them, but that won't work. And they don't claim that will work in the description of the product. Still, this is a clever and economical alternative to having your spare tire/wheel stolen.


I found this barely usable, thank goodness I don't have to use it often. Either I am hard to please or the other reviewers are all using it on TOP of the trailer beam and they would not see my problem. If possible I will never mount a tire on top of the trailer beam as water collects in the tire, ultimately degrading its appearance and functionality.


The good

It's inexpensive, and the handy lockable bracket type nuts are easier to use than the typical locks I've had for spare trailer tires / wheels. You can match locks and keys with your other trailer locks.

If you have room for it under your boat and plan on using it with the tire sitting on top of the trailer beam it's relatively easy to use, but those L-O-N-G threaded rods are really excessively long especially if you are using smaller tires than a full sized auto tire.

The not so good.

If on the other hand you want to mount it on the SIDE of the trailer beam, it's extremely difficult to mount sideways on the trailer. Holding the tire, bracket and rotating the oddly shaped "nuts" is difficult in the best conditions, at night on a rainy, hot night or freezing interstate, I shudder to think how it will be to change a tire.

If the threaded rod were threaded all the way down the shaft, and a steel flat bar with two holes and two nuts securing it to the frame it would be a FAR better product.

Another thing I did was to make a flat bar with two holes so I could use a standard 1/2x20 tpi lug nut and secure it to the frame. Then you could cut the L-O-N-G threaded portion and use a standard cross lug wrench. Of course you lose the locking feature this way. If "I" were the maker, I'd offer this bar as an alternative installing method.

One last nit... I know these are one size fits all tires and trailers, but those L-O-N-G threaded rods are a pain to rotate the nut brackets ALL the way down. Add a little rust in the mix and you can see it can be an issue. I do not think they NEED to be that long.


This bracket works well for normal tires, but not so good for the wider tires on my snowmobile trailer. I wasn’t able to use the locking brackets, and ended up replacing them with 1/2 fine thread nuts.


The Spare tire carrier fit perfectly without any problems and it included fast shipping to my doorstep. This is not the first time that I have done business with etrailer and I highly recommend them for your trailer needs.


This spare tire mount works perfect for my trailer holding the tire in place and with the extra security feature there is no worries of someone stealing the tire because of the locking mechanism.


Great product, allows me to securely carry a spare tire on my tow dolly. Also allows the spare to be locked to prevent theft. Thank you etrailer.


This did a great job locking the tire down and keeping it secure.


Just installed the trailer spare tire carrier. Easy to install, took just a few minutes. No tools needed. Well made, awesome product. Thank you once again etrailer.

  • How Does the Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier # FETCLB0201 Lock a Wheel to the Trailer
    Actually when you use the Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier # FETCLB0201 that you referenced you do not use nuts to secure the U-bolt. Each of the brackets are threaded and basically become the nuts that hold the tire to the U-bolt. You will just need to tighten each bracket as if it is a nut till the wheel is held securely, line up the brackets so they face each other and then run a lock through them.

  • Can Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier be Mounted Under Tongue
    Yes, if you want to mount it under your trailer tongue you could do that with the Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier # FETCLB0201. This will fit a trailer frame/tongue up to 3" wide and fits 8", 9", 12", 13", 14" and 15" wheels with 4 or 5 lugs, a combination which covers the good majority of trailers with that size frame. I have added a link below to a video review for you to check out as well of the Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier # FETCLB0201.

  • How Long Is The Fulton Spare Tire Carrier FETCLB0201
    The Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier # FETCLB0201 will measure 9-5/8" long and 4-5/8" wide going outside to outside. This will also fit frames up to 3" wide. I included a full diagram with all measurements for you to take a look at as well.

  • Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier Compatibility with Angle Iron Frame Trailer
    The Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier - Lockable # FETCLB0201 or the Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier with Wheel Nut Lock # FETCSTL0701 will work with your bolt pattern. I've attached a video to show the installation on a similar angle iron frame to assist. The angle iron can cause wear over time on the sidewall of the tire, so I recommend rotating the spare every so often to give you less wear on a single part of the tire.

  • Trailer Spare Tire Carrier Recommendation for a 15 inch Spare with 5 on 5 inch Bolt Pattern
    Yes, for a spare tire carrier that will accommodate a spare tire with a 5 on 5 inch bolt pattern you have a couple options. You could use a Trailer Spare Tire Carrier # DL22128. If you are interested in a hitch mounted spare tire carrier for a 2x2 hitch shank I recommend # Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier # C31006. This spare tire carrier is a universal fit item designed to fit as many size tire/wheels as possible. I have included a video review of part # C31006 for you...

  • Recommended Spare Tire With 5 On 4-1/2 Inch Bolt Pattern Size 4.80x12
    For your 5x8 Carry-On utility trailer, I recommend the Kenda 4.80-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" White Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - Load Range C # AM30660. You want to make sure your spare tire not only matches size, but also matches the load capacity of your current tires. I recommend using the CE Smith Spare Tire Cover - 12" Diameter x 6-1/2" Wide Trailer Tires - Black # CE27410 to protect your spare from UV and rot. If you don't have a tire carrier, I recommend the Fulton Economy Spare Tire...

  • Recommended Spare Tire Carrier for 8 Inch Wheel on 3 Inch Tube Trailer Frame
    The Demco # DM15851-76 Spare Tire Carrier you'd looked at wouldn't work for you, as the mounting plate for the tire wouldn't fit inside the wheel. I'd recommend using a simple U-bolt style locking spare tire carrier like # FETCLB0201. The carrier is compatible with 8 inch wheels like what your 4.80-8 tire is mounted on and fits trailer frames up to 3 inches wide. I've provide a photo showing the carrier installed on a trailer frame in a similar spot to where you're planning on mounting...

  • Relocating Trailer Spare Tire Below A-Frame Of a 2020 Coachmen Apex Travel Trailer
    I have a couple options for you to consider. The first is the Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier # FETCLB0201 which works with 4 lug and 5 lug wheels and trailer frames up to 3" wide. This would make the tire sit offset on your A-frame. It will be harder to put on and remove the spare when that time comes due to the style of the carrier. I feel the Lippert Spare Tire Winch # LC159056 is your best option for usability. This will allow you to mount the winch on your frame and easily raise...

  • Recommended Spare Tire Mount for 6-Lug Wheels
    The Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier - Lockable # FETCLB0201 is not compatible with 6 lug wheels. It is only compatible with 4 or 5 lug wheels. For your 6 lug wheels, I recommend the Bumper Mounted Tire Carrier - U-Bolt Mount # TR-1 or the Ultra-Fab Folding Spare Tire Carrier for Trailers and RVs - Bumper Mount # UF15-954730. Either of these will work with 6 lug wheels. With either of these, you can use the Fulton Spare Tire Carrier Lock # FSTL0603 to secure your investment.
